CAO Bakery & Cafe, the “Latin Starbucks,” Opens in South Tampa

CAO Bakery & Cafe, located at 7616 W Hillsborough Ave, is a new South Tampa spot offering over 30 different pastries and Cuban coffee. The owners aim to transform CAO into the “Latin Starbucks” and cater to customers’ demand for affordable, satisfying, varied, and comforting food for all three daily meals and events. The bakery offers a variety of Cuban baked goods and pastries, including fried croquettes with two lime wedges, assorted Cuban baked goods, and savoy delights. The bakery’s sweets range from rich chocolates to luscious caramels, fruity delights, and elegantly glazed confections. However, the bakery’s real claim to fame is the pastelito, a mainstay of Cuban pastry cuisine. Pastellitos are a treat that can be enjoyed for breakfast, dessert, or a mid-day pick-me-up. CAO Bakery & Café also serves empanadas, sandwiches, and potato fritters filled with shredded beef.
